Hofstra University Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school?


They are two types of Hofstra Students the ridiculously wealthy from very well to do old money well as new monied families. Many of whom were supposed to go Ivy League but didn't try in school but the minimum education they received makes them top quality students for decent schools like Hofstra. Then there are students who are on every financial aid and scholarship imaginable. These students range from impressively intelligent down to guidos who have no idea what a college education concerns. Both end up in a great deal of debt when they graduate.

Hofstra's entire school population consists of rich long island girls who are dressed head to toe in designer labels and long island guys (dudes) that have overly gel-ed hair and spend 90% of their time at the bar or at the gym. All of these girls and boys love Greek life and put party-ing before studies.

The Hofstra Red, people assume that Hofstra is a big party school with lots of sex and lots of STDs. I feel people look down on Hofstra students because of it and we definitely need to make fixing the Hofstra reputation a priority.

Hofstra has a stereotype that it is a big party school with little focus on academics.


snooty long island kids, guidos


I'm not aware of too many, but one is that we're all your typical Long Island stock. We aren't really known as a party school per se, but there's a little bit of that impression too.


we're all rich


Very Hotttt.


When talking to other kids about Hofstra, they recognized the name because of what's known as Hofstra Red. So supposedly the area and school is so ridden with STD's that we have one named after the school. There is also a sort of stigma that Hofstra is really a second rate, second choice school.


rich kids, designer duds, big jewish population


they're all super rich


"Hofstra Red" - we have the highest STD rate in the country.


they like to party


Long Island, Jewish, snobby


"Long Island girls and boys," people in NY are not as nice as people other places...

People seem to think everyone is Jewish and rich.


A lot of people at other schools in particular seem to think that Hofstra is full of sex maniacs who spread STDs to everyone who sets foot on campus and party 24/7.


STDs spread like wildfire, girls are unapproachable and stuck up, ugg boots and mini skirts.


There's always the STD thing... that makes me laugh. I also hear a lot of stereotypes about the JAP (Jewish American Princess) Long Island girls.

They don't care about anything. Very superficial. Hofstra is full of Long Island girls and Guidos, the former empty headed wearing fake tans and Ugg boots in the summer and the latter with blown out hair and shouting across the local skeezy bars at each other.
